PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Bill '61 and Maryann Christie Endowed Academic/Lacrosse Scholarship
The Providence College Athletic Department is proud to announce that Former Trustee and member of the Class of 1961, Bill Christie and his wife Maryann have made a substantial donation to the Academic/Lacrosse Scholarship endowed in their family's name. With this gift, the Christie family has donated a figure approaching a quarter of a million dollars over the years, which is designed to benefit student-athletes on the lacrosse team.
"The generous support of Bill and Maryann is a key reason that our lacrosse program is heading in the right direction. When we entered the BIG EAST Conference, one of the biggest challenges was funding our program at the maximum level. There is no greater gift than the gift of education and thanks to the Christie family, we are able to provide a student-athlete with the opportunity to play not only collegiate lacrosse but also to receive a first-class education" said Bob Driscoll, Director of Athletics.
"I cannot thank The Christie family enough for the generous support that they have given our program. Their scholarship provides me and my staff with the resources we need to recruit the highest caliber student-athletes to Providence College. Thanks to the support of Bill and Maryann, we are closer to achieving our goals and building a program that consistently competes at the national level", said Chris Gabrielli, Head Lacrosse Coach.
"It is exciting to see the PC lacrosse program progressing at such a fast pace. Having joined the BIG EAST Conference and with the recent hiring of Chris Gabrielli from Duke University, the lacrosse program has been propelled to another successful level. You can count on the Christie family to continue our financial support of our endowed academic/lacrosse scholarship program for many years to come!", said Bill Christie.
